    I'm seeing alot of stuff turning black...never a good color. I'd be finding my Physan bottle soon....better yet say bye bye and buy yourself a new one. That one can only infect others now....

    I have another one that's the same and that one is doing fine. This was a part of the plant that got dislodged during shipping so I figured I'd try and save it. I guess my saving abilities need some work.

    Just don't get too emotionally attached. This little guy might be a nice clinical trial in your orchid saving skills, but no matter how good at it you are--he might just kick the bucket. Good luck. And keep us posted--you might win some sort of forum award for most lost cause revived! Or most miraculous recovery!
